  • Summary: LEGO Star Wars II takes the fun and customization ability of the LEGO play pattern and combines it with the epic story, characters and action from the revolutionary Star Wars: Episodes IV, V and VI. With a unique tongue-in-cheek take on the Original Trilogy, LEGO Star Wars II lets you build and battle your way through your favorite film moments. From Darth Vader's pursuit of Princess Leia aboard her Blockade Runner to Luke's final confrontation with Emperor Palpatine. For the first time ever, characters can get in and out of vehicles, as well as ride creatures. Because it's LEGO style, you can also mix and match the body parts of more than 50 playable characters to create one of millions of possible LEGO Star Wars heroes. And on PS2, Xbox and Windows platforms, a game save from the first LEGO Star Wars can unlock another 50-plus additional characters for Free Play mode -- that's more than 100 total characters. Other exciting additions include free-roaming vehicle levels, the ability to switch ships at will in Free Play mode, cool new character-specific attacks and maneuvers, playable mini-kit vehicles, an adaptive difficulty option and more.

  1. A wonderful game that rewards experimentation and co-operation.
  2. It certainly isn't gaming's greatest challenge, but it's absolutely fun. If you've seen the original trilogy, don't resist! Join the LEGOside.
  3. Combine the first game's addictive gameplay with Lucas' classic trilogy, and you've got a supremely entertaining slice of sci-fi escapism. [Oct 2006, p.101]
  4. And, were it not said, someone would be drummed out of the union: The Force is strong with this one. [Oct. 2006, p.52]
  5. With solidly rebuilt controls only a little marred by a still-fussy camera, LEGO Star Wars II is even better than last years prequel trilogy-based offering. And, as the first LEGO Star Wars was an amazingly entertaining homage to Lucas's genius, this sequel stands atop the original's shoulders as the pinnacle of LEGO Star Wars fun.
  6. With Lego Star Wars II, not only does the game itselff provide a general improvement over the previous release, but it also reinforces just how much better the original(which, technically, is the sequel)Star Wars trilogy is. [Oct. 2006, p.86]
  7. You have to give credit to the brilliant blockhead who forced this awesome yet fundamentally bizarro idea on LucasArts. [Oct. 2006, p.111]

    This is one of the best Lego video games of all-time. The graphics are really nice and the storyline goes with the original story. It's also a well formatted game and it's really enjoyable. Expand

    This game is a pretty easy, and simple but it's an experience that can be enjoyed by gamers of all ages, graphically it's a great looking game, the sound is fantastic the classic Star Wars tunes will bring a smile to your face, and the controls are great, and it has some outstanding co-op that's a blast no matter who your playing with, it has tons of characters and secrets to unlock, these and just the high replay value alone will have you coming back for more, a must play game.
